Sticking together

Lee Tomlin said that Nottingham Forest need to keep sticking together and the results will come after the 2-0 defeat against Middlesbrough yesterday.

The Reds went down to two first-half goals at the Riverside Stadium but the second-half performance gave him some positivity to take into the finals games of the season.

Speaking after the match, he said: "It was a slow start again. If you concede sloppy goals against top teams you get punished. You've got to stick together as a team and hopefully we can kick on.

"In the first half, if you do that to most teams in this league they will make it hard for you to get back into the game. Especially against a team like Middlesbrough it is going to be hard.

"We had been working on set pieces, we get told what the opposition is all about a few days before the game and they didn't do anything special. It is frustrating as it what we have been beaten by, things we have been told about before the game.

"It is another learning curve for us and we have to take it on the chin and move on.

"We need to score goals. That is obviously how you win games but you also have to keep clean sheets. We said in the dressing room that we are sticking together; we don't blame the defenders for conceding and we don't blame the strikers for not scoring. It is a team and we will carry on but we have got to start scoring some goals."
